"Animals are more than ever a test of our character, of mankind’s capacity for empathy and for decent, honorable conduct and faithful stewardship. We are called to treat them with kindness, not because they have rights or power or some claim to equality, but in a sense because they don’t; because they all stand unequal and powerless before us.” ― Matthew Scully


Hello and welcome to Tara Hamilton Photography. My aim is to capture all those exceptional qualities our pets have and kindly donate to us on a daily basis. We all know that our pets are loyal and loving family members, always at our side as we experience the joys and challenges of day to day life. They're our confidants, playmates and best friends.

It gives me great joy capturing the authenticity and character of pets for the people who love them.

I provide custom, on-location photography that allows your pet's unique personality to shine, and provide you with
beautiful images that you will cherish forever. I love to document the relationships between people and their pets also —
each bond is totally unique, each story is special.

"We have almost forgotten how strange a thing it is that so huge and powerful and intelligent an animal as a horse should allow another, and far more feeble animal, to ride upon its back."
~ Peter Gray



"There is a saying that the horse should enjoy himself in his work, otherwise neither the horse not the rider would be able to give an elegant performance." 
Xenophon - The Art of Horsemanship


"The aim of this noble and useful art is solely to make horses supple, relaxed, compliant and obedient and to lower the quarters without all of which a horse -- whether he be meant for military service, hunting or dressage -- will be neither comfortable in his movements nor pleasurable to ride." - Solomon de la Broue ( 1530-1610 )



"There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse."
~ R.S. Surtees


A dog will teach you unconditional love. If you can have that in your life, things won’t be too bad. —Robert Wagner
